executive and he says he had release that tape next week. we'll see you next fox news sunday. >> a fox urgent, nuclear crisis in japan. i'm harris falkner, we're live with a special edition of fox report. a new threat of multiple reactor meltdowns and frantically trying to cool down the reactors with sea water and are' looking at the two plants in question, fukushima where there's been at least one explosion and the other, where we're getting word now radiation levels have dropped back to normal after what they're doing there for the problem. japan's prime minister speaking about friday's twin
7:01pm
disasters, the earthquake and tsunami and now the nuclear threat. his words through a translator. >> 65 years after the end of world war ii, this is the toughers and most difficult for japan in that period. >> harris: we're just starting to get some satellite images. this is sendai, the epicenter of the quake. before on the left side of the screen and after. you can see how a torrent of tsunami driven mud ripped through the covered ground here. the government confirming now more than 2500 buildings in that city destroyed. scientists have just revised their estimates now how big that earthquake was, putting it at a stronger magnitude of 9.0. the death toll climbing into the thousands and rescue teams searching hundreds of miles of ravaged coast line for any survivors and those who did
7:02pm
make it through the quake, when that wall of water waiting for help. millions tonight without electricity or drinking water. our adam housley is streaming live outside the fish market in the city there. adam, what can you tell us about the nuclear concerns there? >> reporter: yeah, here is at the fish market, the japanese coast, 70 miles away from the first reactor you're talking about, the one that caused the problem the last couple of days before the new reactor up the close from there caused problems and people were talking about the threat at that does exist around this entire region because the fact you have three separate reactors that people are extremely worried about. that evaluation area we're told is about 15 miles in circumference. and up to 200,000 people for sure have already been evacuated and the government says maybe as many as 300,000 will be evacuated and we do know that there are at least 19 scientists on at least one site where they're going through and checking each person being brought out to see what kind of radiation con
7:03pm
tamation they've been exposed to. >> yeah, adam, we've been seeing video of some of that radiation testing going on. where do you put more than 200,000 people who were evacuated in the middle of an earthquake zone? >> well, we're going to talk about that, too. i want to show you something behind me and i'll answer that question. before that, where we are, this fish market had ten feet come through and there were no fatalities. what happened in thailand 2004 and 2005, a similar area we went to where thousands were killed. the reason why not one person was killed here in a significant part of the coastline in japan was because of the tsunami warning system. while the damage here is extensive there were no deaths here. now, the government is estimating potential as many as 10,000 people have died, all up the coast and marbly inland and that's due to the massive wall of water that went a lot further than many expected in rural areas, generally speaking. now, as for the people who
7:04pm
have been moved inland, they're being put in areas like a military base that's north and west of tokyo. that's one area they've been taken to, a couple of other towns inland up next to the mountains, 60, 70 miles from the reactors and some of those people are evacuated to and we're talking literally, several hundred thousand people being moved and and top of that, harris, more than two or three billion without power and overnight, in certain parts of this northern part of this island. it came down to 26, 27 degrees, and that means there's no gas to keep people warm. no electricity to do that as well and it's extremely cold here at night and that's one thing the government is concerned about and rolling blackouts to continue to be instituted today and includes tokyo, factories and people will be dealing without power for three or four hours purposely to help those who don't have power in the northern part of the country. >> harris: before i let you go. i have a quick question what people may have with them.
7:05pm
what with were they able to grab, some of them as they were leaving their home? >> well, around here the businesses were still open when the tsunami hit so a lot of people lived away from the coastline and those on the coastline left and had maybe, ten, 15 minutes depending where the location was and grabbed what was on their back and a couple of quick supplies and out of the region and a lot of people that don't have a lot of stuff and drove along the coastline, and a lot of homes where people were bringing the furniture and everything outside because the water came through and literally piling it on the street and started to clean up the homes that way and people lost a lot of things and there as you more farther north and that massive wall, 20 to 30 feet came through and there's no house or nothing to come back to, if they lived through that horrific event. >> yeah, and i asked in part because it's so cold i wondered if people could even grab a coat. adam housley, thank you very much for this live report from the ground. >> reporter: that's a good question. >> harris: thank you, adam. official word now.
7:06pm
>> reporter: right. >> harris: telling us not to fear any radiation following in the direction of the united states from japan's damaged power plant. the nuclear regulatory commission saying hawaii, alaska and the west coast will not suffer harmful radiation, and officials say the distance between the two countries could keep dangerous radioactivity off shore and what is headed our way and how fast could it be to the people there in japan. questions for an expert will join us later on the fox report. a warning to americans, not to travel to japan right now. the state department telling government workers to cancel nonessential trips there and first, to reschedule. this over concerns japan could experience strong after shocks for weeks to come. and japan of course, a close american ally, u.s. war ships arriving earlier today and with help and supplies and our doug mche willway new live from washingtons and what's the american help for relief
7:07pm
on this. >> the aircraft carrier u.s.s. reagan and battle groups as well as other military personnel conducted well over 20 missions providing humanitarian arrive and orion aircraft over debris fields trying to judge, and also looking for survivors. >> a 60-year-old man out to sea clinging to the roof. and he went to his house and got some belongses and out to sea and his apparently his wife remains missing. they're providing civilian to humanitarian aid and two search and rescue teams from west fairfax, virginia, and others to the quake zone and much equipment must come by roadway and the roads of course have been heavily damaged, no he it willing when they will get there with equipment and they are among rescue teams sent from ten
7:08pm
different countries and the american red cross, also accepting donations, go to foxnews.com for information how to donate to them. the red cross basically serving as a secondary roll to the japanese red cross. >> there are also pockets of communities where no one's been able to get to yet because they've been cut off by roads that have been destroyed or even by the tsunami waters that haven't receded. so those are the people we're really worried about. >> reporter: the good news about this epic disaster, harris, with so many assets already in place in japan, the at the naval base, the okay saw wa air space and okinawa, the u.s. military is optimally positioned to help out with the crisis especially with emergency medical supplies people need, and food, so they won't spoil and potable water, very important in the days to come. >> harris: i know in the
7:09pm
catastrophe with the nuclear looming on this, what is said about that? >> reporter: the military and also nrc, officials from the u.s. nuclear regulatory commission have sent experts were expertise with boiling water and nuclear reactors, they've been deployed as part of the team and the nrc operations center up and running on a 24 hour basis and providing any expertise that the scientists in japan may need. >> thank you very much. and first, you talk about helping the people of japan tonight. we have a way that you can. and you can donate to charities mobilizing to get relief to those in need and remember, you have to watch out, and put together a list of reputable ones. go to foxnews.com and click the red how to help link below the top story and that will take you to a list of charities where your money and efforts will go to the right place. well, we're learning more tonight about the money impact of the disaster and the cost of insuring the losses and one study suggesting this could be
7:10pm
the most expensive quake in recent history. according to risk analysis company, air worldwide, friday's quake could cost 14 to 35 billion dollars. and that's just the damage from the quake. and these early findings don't include paying for the destruction from the tsunami. if the numbers hold, that would rank this as the second most expense stiff disaster in modern history. right after the cost of hurricane katrina hitting the gulf coast in 2005. turning now to the state with the largest japanese-american community in america. here is california's little tokyo neighborhood of los angeles, people anxiously trying to reach loved ones in japan. with phone lines down and power knocked out across at that country using e-mail and social networking sites to contact family and friends and now the community is in full swing doing all it can to relief at least some of the suffering there. our casey stegall is live in los angeles and casey, how are people pulling together? >> reporter: well, harris, as you said, they're not wasting
7:11pm
time at all and already organizing concerts and fund raising events to try and raise as much cash to infuse into the devastated region and this disaster hit this particular community hard. nearly 300,000 japanese-americans call the state of california home, more than anywhere else in america and back here behind me, little tokoyo in downtown los angeles a bustling districts with restaurants and businesses and other shops and news of the destruction hit this community hard and swept through quickly. so it goes without saying that an awful lot of people are affected and they're anxious and glued to the television, watching the coverage and many of them have family in japan and have desperately trying to get a hold of them, but crippled communications has made that an arduous task. >> just weeks ago and everything is-- if you've ever been to the city of sendai, a beautiful
7:12pm
city and organized, so clean, and it's just horrifying to think what the result is. >> reporter: so the horrible waiting game continues for a lot of people as we know. internet has been spotty and a lot have been turning to facebook and twitter to try to locate loved ones and through a special website set up through google and the american red cross, but a cloud of uncertainty hanging over this part of l.a. a lot of people he very unsure even tonight, harris. >> harris: our prayers are with them and their family members. casey stegall, thank you very much. beginning tomorrow, fox report with shepard smith live from japan. shep will be on the ground to bring us firsthand the devastation, 7 p.m. eastern and 4 p.m. and as well as the other news of the day, let's go down to the middle east. chaos in libya, loyalists from

7:16pm
>> break now on the fox report. a manhunt for a police shooter. at least one officer is dead and three others injured after a man opened fire with a rifle. it happened outside of grundy, virginia, 189 miles west of roanoke. police say one suspect is armed and dangerous and we're working the story from the news room and bring you the latest updates and video if they come in. c co-pilot called after his helicopter hit a building and
7:17pm
pulled him from the chock pit moments before the helicopter burst into flames. it was trying to lift an air conditioning unit to the roof of that two story unit, and no word yet what caused the crash. >> now to the middle east in libya. supporters of gadhafi say they gained ground against rebel forces for key control. and the rebels held it for several days and gadhafi soldiers pound it go with air strikes and the the city was quote, from armed gangs. our leland vittert streaming from the rebel strong hold in benghazi, and the rebels have said and now we see they're not backing away from gadhafi's army. >> reporter: there's no question they're backing away, harris. things have gotten a lot worse the past 24 hours since we last talked. in the next 24 hours probably get even worse once again and
7:18pm
it's no longer safe for us to head up to the front lines the rebels often run away before they see the gadhafi troops coming down the road and gadhafi has heavy artillery and also his air force, to bombard the rebels. at the town of brega battle, a time for them to make a defensive stand, high ground and a chance to hold it and also an oil refinery city which holds the key to the rest of the eastern part of the country for gas. remember, without gas, the rebels can't move their troops, unable to move their ammunition or anything else and now gadhafi holds the two major refineries in libya and it's going to make a big difference in the coming days and certainly an expectation there will be be be fuel shortages and the rebels are proving to be a very incoherent fighting force and mostly young men signed up, either students or young professionals and said victory or death and gung-ho, drunk on
7:19pm
bravado, you might say and now everyone is looking at each other and realizing, harris, that overtlog gadhafi as a dictator is harder than it looks and may not happen. >> harris: i don't know if people remember. several weeks ago it started with protesting and moved into the next phase, that continued to look like civil war. what happens if gadhafi is able to retake the country, what happens with the people so unhappy with him. >> reporter: well, there's a lot of people here in benghazi, the rebel strong hold where this all began, that are very scared about just that situation. these troops have been marching, gadhafi's troops all the way steadily east and they are only 130 miles from where i'm standing, moving 80 miles a day as they continue the savage march across the country and a lot of people in benghazi to are worried about
7:20pm
real reprisal and in gadhafi's regime often can mean torture ab death. >> harris: leland vittert streaming live and thank you very much for the report. on the united states, another restless night in the northeast, the flood waters threatened communities and how much longer until the flood waters recede? we're in one of the hardest hit areas with an update. ♪ trouble, trouble trouble, trouble ♪ ♪ trouble been doggin' my soul ♪ since the day i was born ♪ worry ♪ oh, worry, worry worry,orry ♪ [ announcer ] when it comes to things you care about, leave nothing to chance. travelers. take the scary out of life. the one time of year red lobster creates so many irresistible ways to treat yourself to lobster. like our new lobster-and-shrimp trio

>> east coast flooding causes more than headaches across several states. one of the worst hit areas, new jersey. where the swollen passaic river has driven people from their homes and kept the rescue crews busy. the danger has not gotten over. >> reporter: little falls, new jersey, as you can see the
7:24pm
home behind me evacuated and you can't tell, but underwater those are sand bags obviously doing no good and the car abandoned in a car port. the residents, hundreds of residents evacuated on thursday and friday due to a fast rising passaic river about three to four blocks down the street here and that river cresting last night, up almost 12 feet. now at that river falling, receding about six inches, very slowly, but surely receding and it won't take until probably wednesday before residents are allowed to come back into their homes. a lot of people though decided to pretty much weather the storm, if you will, trying to run the sump pumps overnight and the water out of their basements, but unfortunately due to lack of electricity and hot water it's been a rough, rough couple days here in little falls, new jersey. harris. >> harris: all right. julie, thank you very much. so, what is next for this already flooded areas? let's get to meteorologist maria molina live in the fox weather center for an answer. >> reporter: hi, harris, we
7:25pm
expect the rivers to begin to recede slowly here, and here is actually the passaic river and the river gauge showing where it crested last night and this is the forecast by tuesday and we still expect it to be at flood stage even though the water levels are lowering. we expect dry conditions, a lot of sunshine and that will be helping many of the rivers recede. i want to point out we're actually watching another storm system and that will be developing across the center of the country as we head into tonight, and that will be tracking northeastward and impact the northeast as we head into wednesday with actually, as of our last model run, now a little bit more rain and we're expecting about a half inch of this out here and you have to keep in mind, the ground is saturated in the region and any amount of additional rainfall could be causing additional run-up and flooding concern and another problem, even though we don't expect any rainfall for the beginning of the work week, monday and tuesday, you also have to keep in mind we have problems with ice jacks currently occurred.
7:26pm
and one area hit hard is east central new york today. under flash flood warnings. and you see the chunks of ice going downstream and has nowhere to go and impacts the local towns. >> harris: frightening stuff. maria, thank you very much. fighting off multiple nuclear meltdowns. japan dealing with the worst crisis it has faced since the end of world 2. the danger is far from over. hundreds of thousands of survivors dealing with cold temperatures, no electricity, as they wait for rescuers to reach them. how they are coping on the ground. stay put.

7:30pm
>> i'm harris falkner and this is the fox report. it's the bottom of the hour, time now for the top of the news. japan fighting a threat of meltdown in several locations and plant operators working around the clock desperately trying to keep temperatures down as several reactors, wrecking at least two by dumping sea water inside them, a last ditch effort to avoid a disaster. the estimate of friday's magnitude earthquake, 9.0 and the death toll climbing into the thousands and rescuers searching along hundreds of miles of coastline for survivors and the worst crisis
7:31pm
in the nation, world war ii when cities were hit by atomic bombs. adam at a fish market after days of aftershocks, what happens when they hit, sirens go off and people panic? >> the sirens aren't working a love of them have no electricity in the towns and we felt a large one this morning, early in the morning it woke us up and you can feel them, the hoe it will we were in, it's not really hotel by western standards, a small room basically, but you feel it and hear things against the wall and that kind of thing. so the shakes do come and a couple more this morning standing here and keep in mind, a seismologist and an american seismologist here in japan giving a talk, basically a seminar when the the earthquake hit last week, they've both said that they expect aftershocks in the next couple of days, 85%
7:32pm
probability in that range that could be in the mid to upper 7's and they say historically, that's what happens in japan. if you have a large aftershocks, another one follows about 80% of the power of the original. they doesn't believe that it's happened yet. they think that it's he very likely that could happen and if it's in the upper 70's then you have the worries of tsunami again and say the exact same thing, harris. >> harris: oh, that's frightening, adam. i had not heard that. 85% chance half happening and i question what they're doing to get ready and wonder how people are dealing with a couple of things in those areas where they don't have a whole lot of electricity or gas. the rolling blackouts and the cold temperatures. >> reporter: absolutely. the rolling blackouts have begun today and we can tell you, also, from driving back and forth across this part of the country, that gas stations, if they even have gas are massive lines, hours upon hours, people standing overnight in line to get gas and told by a local don't expect to have gas stations refilled for a couple of days
7:33pm
since they've run out and when you go to the stores if they're open the shelves are virtually empty. there's been a run on food and run on gas and people are concerned what's going on here and that's in the area of where they actually have those locations still available. as you move into other areas there is he' been destruction like here, that's not an option. there's a lot of concern and cold at night 25, 26, 27 degrees. several million people without power and gas and others moved out of the area where the nuclear threat exists and gretta-- harris, the situation when people are dealing here and the threat of a possible large aftershock, 80 to 85% probability that experts told us and people are versused in this kind of thing. >> i know from reporting and watching you, it seems very desperate scenes of devastation around the world and there is an initial
7:34pm
inertia and energy at the beginning. people, the survivors kind of get -- but as time runs on and they run out of supplies and start to run out of hope a little bit. what is the sense from people you've been able to talk with? >> reporter: yeah, that's a very good point. we saw it in haiti and southeast asia. one difference here, you have an aircraft carrier, two in the region and a number of very large u.s. bases and all of their infrastructure is 100% intact and the men and women located on the sea or bases are-- they're solely prepared and ready and the fact that japan is one of the most advanced countries in the region, that helps. having said that you're talking a significant number of people and a very large area, so, i don't think desperation has set in in most of the areas, but i've been told in some of the areas where the destruction is will almost 100%, that's where the people are worried about people that might be stranded or trapped and have no ability
7:35pm
really to get food for themselves or stay warm. >> harris: all right, adam housley reporting live. thank you very much for your great work. new reaction now from washington on the developing situation at the crippled japanese nuclear reactor. all of that raising questions about the safety of u.s. nuke power plants. senator joe lieberman weighing in saying the u.s. needs to fully understand what's happening in japan and in the meantime, slow down construction of new american nuclear plants. >> the reality is that we're watching something unfold that we don't know where it's going with regards to the nuclear power plants in japan right now and i think it calls on us here in the us naturally not to stop building nuclear power plants, but put the brakes on right now until we understand the ramifications what's going on in japan. >> what's going on inside the plants? our peter doocy has more.
7:36pm
>> there are 442 nuclear reactors operating in the world right now. 55 are in japan and six of those had problems that the earthquake and tsunami this past week. and this is what the boiling water reactor looks like right now to make nuclear science as simple as possible and you can see that the explosion happened in the secondary containment area, but at this point in time, the primary containment area remains intact. and for some historical context, the international atomic energy agency, seven unit level scale for the radiological event. a level one is just an anomaly, but a seven is a major act and chernobyl was a seven and right now, japan was up four, that's what a nuclear expert said this morning and he added that it could soon become a five which is the level of three mile island. >> the worst case scenario is that the fuel rod fused together, the temperatures get so hot they melt together to a
7:37pm
radioactive moulton mass and burst through the containment mechanisms and to the outside. and the new radioactivity into the ground, the air, the water and some of that could carry into the atmosphere into the west coast of the united states. >> about one-fifth of electricity in the united states comes from nuclear power and we've got 104 reactors, but the u.s. nuclear regulatory commission says you should not be concerned because all u.s. nuclear power plants were built taking into account the most severe natural disaster historically estimated for both the sites and the surrounding area. and harris. >> great information, peter, thank you. well, we now know some amount of radiation has leaked from at least one of the damaged nuclear power plants in japan. what are the potential health risks if people are contaminated? dr. mark segal is a member of the fox news medical a-team joining us now. thank you, doctor, for being here. i know you've been monitoring agencies in japan that have been giving the numbers of
7:38pm
people exposed or not exposed to radiation, what have you found out. >> conflicting reports, but looks like 160 people exposed or gotten sick and 16 workers have gone to the hospital. there we're talking about something called radiation sickness, that's acute, that wouldn't mean a lot of radiationings something like 10,000 times what you get in a chest x-ray, that would make you nauseous, vomiting diarrhea, skin problems. that's acute, that's not likely-- if we use chernobyl as an example, it's not likely to affect more than a couple hundred people, but what is, if the radiation leaks out what's the long-term risk of the radiation. that's a separate issue. after chernobyl, there was a concern of thyroid cancer. 17 million got that after chernobyl and few developed. the 6,000 that did did not get those pills. >> harris: so they're doing that as a precautionary measure. what about moving them 12 miles away, does that make a
7:39pm
difference? >> that's a great question idea, is that enough? you're talking evacuating 100,000 people and obviously contain this as soon as possible and i'm concerned about the fear factor here because people have a sense of loss of control and when you lose control, as people handing out pills, you worry that it's going to happen to you. after the last tsunami in 2004, up to 50% of people had post traumatic stress disorder. we're going to see a lot of that here. >> harris: and you say that that psychological effect can be long-term as well. quickly, there is the concern that some of the radiation has reached the united states, carried on the wind, if you will, in the weather system. if that's true and they say it's nonharmful amount what should we be prepared for? >> the kind of radiation i'm concerned about, not just iodine, plutonium, trace amounts are not something we need to worry about, small amounts. >> harris: all right. >> the more there is, the more you get concerned in the
7:40pm
island of japan of genetic risk possible long-term cancer risk, i'm not worried about the united states, not at this point. >> harris: dr. segal was useful information tonight. thank you for joining us, good to see you. >> thanks. >> harris: coming up, we'll take a look how the weather in japan is impacting the spread of radiation. this is the very thing we were just talking about. and today forecasters saying the wind at one nuclear plant leaking radiation is blowing south, but what happened as that changes and the winds start blowing towards say, one of the big cities, like tokyo? . there are a lot of questions out there about retirement. let fidelity help you find the answers. our investment professionals work with you to help you make the most of your retirement and enjoy the life you've saved for. fidelity investments. where leading companies and millions of people go to get the real answers they need.
